When to change a clutch

I was in 3rd gear today doing 8 grand and and pinned it. It went to like 11gs and I only gained like 5mph. I was like whoa thats not good. I think I'm starting to see some early signs of clutch slippage and I started hearing a noise recently that kinda sounds like air blowing, similar to what I've heard on cars when their clutchs go out, when I pin the throttle. My F4 has 17k on it with I think the stock clutch. Should it be time for a new one at this point of life on my bike?

Clutch life all comes down to how you ride it, and more so how much you slip it. I've seen how alot of people ride and honestly wouldn't be suprised if they needed new clutches before they hit 10k miles... makes me cringe hearing them take off from a stop. I think to myself.... "what did that clutch ever do to you?? " LOL But yea if you're not running evergy conserving oil, and there's plenty of freeplay in the lever, then it sounds like it's clutch time. There's no set mileage interval for clutches, just depends on how each individual one is treated. On my bike I've got 113k on the original factory clutch and it's still fine... no slippage at all. My buddies Suzuki Bandit was on it's 3rd clutch by 40k or so (but that bike had other problems too). My Accord I got 321k out of the original factory clutch, and it never started slipping just broke a damper spring on the clutch disc and jammed the clutch. I've known of a woman with a brand new Hyundai that burnt the clutch out in 1000 miles (yea she didn't know how to drive manual... at all). It's all relative Sounds like you need a clutch th

you should check ur spark plugs for the jumpy. and also if the car is a manual there might be a problem with the gearbox either the whole clutch kit is gone or just the master cylinder is not giving away the break fluid..

You probably need a transmission pro to diagnose it properly, but it doesn't sound good. Was the original fluid you drained dirty brown? And did you see significant amounts of metal shavings in the transmission pan? The severe discoloration of the fluid is due to the clutch pack material wearing off and dispersed throughout the fluid. If the fluid smelled burnt, it is almost certain the transaxle is toast.

The 3rd Gear Synchro is worn or damaged, which is why it grinds when you try to upshift or downshift into 3rd gear. When it goes out completely you will have a very hard time shifting into 3rd gear, since the Synchro lines up the gears to make shifts smooth and easy.

smell your oil, does it smell burnt? if it does, then you probably have worn clutch plates. but there is also the possibility that your clutch springs are to weak or broken.
